Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star is a traditional nursery rhyme song that was written by Ann Taylor in the 19th century.

The Wiggles' version of the song first appeared in Wiggledancing! Live In Concert, before making its studio video debut proper in Pop Go The Wiggles!.

Lyrics

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
How I wonder what you are

When the blazing sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle all the night
Twinkle, twinkle little star,
How I wonder what you are

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
How I wonder what you are
How I wonder what you are

  • In the 2007 version, Dominic Lindsay's name is listed credited in some versions of the song credits such as the US version, although he didn't arrange the song.
  • Before this song was recorded, it was sung by Greg in Splish Splash Big Red Boat. Then later, it was rehearsed (and likely performed) in Wiggledancing! Live On Stage. Greg sang it again on his own YouTube channel in 2016 on guitar in one video and hand movements in another.
